Spring is such a lovely time of the year, with the long winter nights going, new buds on the trees and best of all, the lambing season.  It’s a great experience for kids to visit a farm and delight at meeting these adorable lambs.  There are lots of places around Oxfordshire and Berkshire to meet newborn lambs and at some places you can even bottle feed them.

Here are a selection of the best lambing days around Oxfordshire and Berkshire and we’ll keep adding more.  Some of the farms have lambing everyday and others are just special weekend events.  Many places also have other activities going on so you can make it a full fun family day out with the kids.

If you’re looking to go further afield, we also have a guide for Buckinghamshire and Surrey.

Roves Farm is one of my favourite places to take my kids to see the lambs. The lambing season got underway again this year 7th to 10th January with another event around April.  It’s one of my favourite times of year!  The picture at the top was from one of our previous visits.

With so many newborn arrivals, you can get up close with the friendly Poll Dorset ewes and their lambs for a unique farm experience.

Come and see all their expectant ewes and the new born lambs keeping cosy in the lambing shed. There’s a special viewing platform that looks out across the lambing shed, there will be plenty of opportunities to see lambing in action. Although not guaranteed there is a good chance you might even be able to see one being born!  We did last year on our visit.
